I was looking through the latest V.H.A. mag and noticed that Bill and Lerch were on the awards list for both the 500yd and 1000yd club. We heard the stories on L.R.H. last year and now it's official. (Great job guys) Now lets hear how the quest for 1500yds is progressing ? Only 38 people made the 1000yd club last year. Just 9 made the 1500yd club, and three made the 2000yd club. Hope to hear that you guys make the next two legs of the slam this year.--7mmrhb
Thanks for the kind words!! We went out Sunday to try the next leg but came up a few inches short. I don't know how many times we kicked dirt on the little devils or shaved their whiskers, but we're getting close!! 1500 yds is a lot tougher than 1000 yds.
One of the toughest parts is trying to range an individual dog @ these ranges. They have also been shot @ quite a bit and they know what a dust cloud is!!! I've got a plan to make it a little easier that invlolves several fence posts and different colored ribbon. Those little suckers are in trouble next trip!!! (I think that is what I said last time?) I can only imagine how tough 2000 will be!!!
Y'all got any hats you want to give away [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] cause if you can't fittem on your head you might as well [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
I heard tell that you can put out a cheap mirror and that will give you a good laser read and while they are admiring themselves ( they must be vain , look how they stand up so straight so everyone can admire them [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] ) you can bust them!!
10 yards short of the 500 club last spring with the MOAG team and then a summer of activities, work and events to prevent another serious attempt all summer long but that is going to stop this year.
Congradulations Lerch and Bill for pushing it way out there.
Can't wait to join you and the others in the "book". Goodness knows I've been piddling around with it long enough. It's high time I git 'er done. I'm keeping an eye on you bi-pod shooters. Lead the way. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
GRAVITY. It's not just a good idea. It's the LAW!
